OK, I know I said I would not bug you any more today, but I thought that
this was worth passing along.
Benchmark: timing 1000 iterations of cooked, raw...
cooked: 34 wallclock secs ( 0.25 usr 1.10 sys + 21.87 cusr 10.48
csys = 33.
70 CPU) @ 740.74/s (n=1000)
raw: 70 wallclock secs ( 0.19 usr 1.11 sys + 58.81 cusr 10.48
csys = 70.
59 CPU) @ 769.23/s (n=1000)
As you can see, the cooked version (that is, the compiled version) runs
in less than half the time of the raw version. This is a simple one-line
"Hello World" program. I have no inkling of whether this would improve,
or get worse, with more complicated programs. Perhaps I'll be able to
tell you more later in the week.
